Trump Claimed Not to Know Lev Parnas Again and His Lawyer Just Released a Damning Video That Shows Otherwise

Fox News // MSNBC

Lev Parnas, an associate of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, made explosive claims on the Rachel Maddow show Wednesday night.

According to Parnas, Trump knew all about his and Giuliani's efforts to use congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine as leverage to spur announcements of investigations that would be politically beneficial to the President.

Last year, when Parnas was indicted for illegally funneling money to Republican campaigns, Trump denied knowing him.

Fully expecting Trump to repeat those denials after these new and explosive allegations, Parnas vowed to release a new photo of the pair together each time Trump tried to distance himself.

Predictably, Trump wholeheartedly denied knowing Parnas in the Oval Office on Thursday.

Not long after, Parnas's attorney—Joseph Bondy—made good on the earlier promise of his client, releasing a video of Parnas introducing people to Trump at Mar-A-Lago to the tune of Janet Jackson's Together Again.

It was just the latest in a days-long stream of evidence from Parnas's attorney that the two knew each other.

The evidence put up by Bondy was enough to rebut Trump's denial in the court of public opinion.

Trump will likely deny knowing Parnas again, but we're sure Bondy has more evidence at the ready.

Part II of Parnas's interview with Rachel Maddow airs tonight.

This was just before the stock market plummeted by thousands of points in the face of uncertainty in the national health crisis.

Loeffler also invested in Citrix, a telework software company, just before millions of Americans began working from home.

But she wasn't done yet.

During the global pandemic, unemployment has ballooned in the United States.

Not only do those people need unemployment benefits, which Congress addressed in the relief package created in the Democratically controlled House of Representatives, but many also lost their health insurance with their jobs.

The pandemic that thrust the United States into a national health crisis was repeatedly dismissed by President Donald Trump during its early stages, when prevention was most feasible.

The Hernando County Sheriff's office arrested Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne last week after the Trump devotee ignored orders forbidding gatherings of more than ten people. Howard-Browne continued to hold services at his massive Florida church, potentially spreading the virus that's caused a national health crisis in the United States.

The pastor had told congregants that the church had installed vents which kill all diseases. He also encouraged them to shake hands.

This is constantly proving to be untrue.
